The quiet witness of Christian medical and veterinary workers in the Republic and on Mayotte has won credit and public honour as well as opportunities to share the Lord Jesus with the people. Pray for continued and increased opportunities for witness and that such may bear fruit.
Christian resources. The JESUS film is available in Shimaore and Shingazidja. The NT is available in Shimaore, and portions are available in Shingazidja. Radio has been effective in introducing Comorians to Christ and discipling them, although programmes are not yet available in Comorian. Pray that all these tools will be a blessing to Comorians, and pray for two more film translations that are needed but not yet started.
